mwuahahha. it do be the night of the dead. Ohh well, who cares. As my classmates go out trick or treating (yeah, it's sad hearing 16 and 17 yearolds talking about what costume they're gonna wear), I have better things to do. I got a new mouse :) My old mouse kept on screwing up and I ran out of mouse buttons to replace the broken ones with, so I got a Logitech Marble. I don't really like the idea of a mouse not haveing three buttons, but I can get use to it. I'm also getting interested in Darwin. Seeing how I only have Intel boxen, I might have to learn and do some kernel programming :) That should be fun. With MacOS X I just might get a Cube :) If I only had that kinda money (*drool* .5gig ram, 40gig hdd, 22" theatrical display *goes comatose*) As for language master I'm not getting much work done cause I'm too damn lazy when I get home. I try programming at school, but the librarian doesn't like me using a java SSH applet, she wants to know what I'm gonna do and what exactly SSH is. I'll do what I damn well please on my computer and not explain it to anyone. I REALLY hate it when people ask what I'm doing on the computer because it's usually something stupid and embarassing to explain ({sarcastic gay lispy voice} I'm picking out themes. *tisk* Don't you just LOVE this fa├žade?) or too complicated to explain to someone who doesn't really care (I'm writing a one-liner to download all the pictures from this site and then generate a webpage for it by using some basic unix shell scrip and perl, but for some reason it's not working. Oh, I forgot the semicolon! Duh! *other person nods and says `yes' and runs away frantically*) So that's pissing me off. So far she'll let me use it, but she has to contact her supervisor. *thwacks head* So annoying I can't find words to express it. Okay whatever, I'm done with me weekly ranting. I have to pluck my gray hairs (yes it's true, I have gray hairs.)
